Seeing clearly in VR is a priority that you shouldn't overlook.

You're ready to spend some time in VR. The area is clean, your accessories are charged, and you put on your PlayStation VR headset. Except that instead of seeing a crisp, clean image displayed around you, everything looks blurry and ill defined. This is an issue since it can cause issues with nausea, along with being a less than amazing experience. Thankfully, it's pretty easy to deal with this problem.

Make sure your headset is properly fitted

Fit your PlayStation VR helmet

PlayStation VR utilizes a helmet that is quite different than any other VR headset on the market. Due to that, you may be having issues seeing clearly because the headset is not fitted properly. This can be easily fixed though, just by readjusting the helmet to make sure you have it sitting where it is supposed to.

There are a few things to do in order to get the perfect fit with PlayStation VR. In particular though, you want to make sure there is a snug fit, and that the visor of the helmet is as flush to your face as possible. If you have less than stellar vision you may end up adjusting the headset a few times until you have the best vision possible. For the best possible image though, that visor needs to be as flush to your face as possible.

Clean your headset

The biggest reason that you may be having issues seeing, is that your headset has gotten dirty. Specifically dust, detritus, or even fingerprints may be obscuring the lenses on your PlayStation VR helmet. If this is the case, then you're in luck, because this is a super simple fix. All you need to do is clean your PlayStation VR.

You're going to want to pay special attention to the lenses, since anything on them will cause serious blurriness up close. If it just looks like there is a smudge on one, or both of the lenses, then grab the cleaning cloth that came with your PlayStation VR. Using the cloth, gently wipe at the lenses. This may clear up the problem, without cleaning the headset more thoroughly.

Restart your PlayStation VR

In some very rare cases, the video coming from PlayStation 4 to your PlayStation VR can become warped or corrupted. This will probably never happen for most people, but if you do encounter a blurred or distorted image and the above fixes don't help, you can reboot PlayStation VR to try correcting a receiver issue. Just tap the power button on the PlayStation VR control cable, wait a few moments, and tap again to restore power. This will reset the connection with your PlayStation 4, which should correct any distortions.
